Suppose you and a few of your very rich firends took a look at the world and saw that there were two big problems. First was world population growth, and second was the rise of a middle class in many countries where no middle class had existed before. The combination of the two factors indicated a serious environmental catastrophe was about to happen. They pondered how to stop the inpending disaster, and they came up with a simple plan. In essence, the plan was to destroy the middle class. Take away the social safety nets, render the public school systems ineffective, disenfranchise as many voters as possible, and make the tax structure regressive so that upward economic mobility is stifled.

Stupid post. What population issue are you talking about, and I don't buy globel warming, or what ever you call it today.

Or you said "Hey, we can come up with some great ideas like the next Apple product or an affordable flying car." And then you and your rich friends proceed to build a few factories, which hire hundreds or thousands of people, and then you sub-contract to other companies to build components and accessories, and they hire hundreds of people. And then,as more and more people want your product, you open more factories and continue hiring and more people become upwardly mobile, and the especially promising of them, moves even more rapidly up the chain.

I like my concept, which actually works, a lot better than yours.
